“Frankly, I don’t like it,” Utah Democratic Party Chairman Peter Corroon said on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast." "If you don’t like the system, change the system. [But] this is the system that we have.

"That’s the system that the two candidates are working in. They both need to get as many of those superdelegates as possible.”

Corroon said that Sanders is playing fair by trying to convert superdelegates supporting Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBiden's pick for vice president doesn't matter much GOP challenger seizes on outrage against Massie Juan Williams: Mueller, one year on MORE instead.

“The system is what the system is, so if people are working trying to get those superdelegates to switch, so be it,” he said.

“I think it’s very hard, obviously, to get somebody who’s already committed to switch,” Corroon added. "It makes sense to go out and see how strong those commitments are.

“If they’re not real strong commitments and the tide starts turning toward Sen. Sanders – he’s won, what, eight of the last nine races – some of those people may be willing to switch when they may not have been previously.”

Corroon said Sanders faces a steep climb catching up with Clinton’s superdelegate count before the Democratic National Convention in July.

“I think Secretary Clinton did a very good job early on in getting some of that superdelegate support,” he said.

"It sounds like Bernie Sanders is on it a little late to the game. I think that Sen. Sanders is now coming back and trying to play catch up on some of those supporters.”

Clinton leads Sanders with 1,758 delegates to his 1,069, according to the latest RealClearPolitics delegate count.

That total is mainly comprised of 1,289 delegates who support Clinton based on their state’s voting contests, and 1,038 backing Sanders for the same reason.

Clinton’s edge with superdelegates, party leaders not bound to the popular vote in their states. She has 469 superdelegates to Sanders’s 31.
